CHICAGO- DANCE CENTER CHICAGO-REGISTRATION OPEN!

The class that has everyone ready to pop, wobble, werk, and wine!!!
This high-energy choreography intensive is not for the faint of heart. Fusing the sensuality of burlesque with the sharp attitude of hip hop, this class will focus on isolations, footwork, and of course…THE BOOTY! Class begins with a warm up and stretch and moves into a combination of popping your favorite asset. Learn coveted moves such as the Booty Chaser and the Slow Wine! Drop it like it’s hot and pick it back up again! Some dance experience is recommended.

***Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing in which you can easily move. Booty shorts and knee pads recommended. Bring a water bottle.
